Great class for all those who fancy a little fabric fun. Make two panels for use as cushions, bag panels or as quilt blocks. Ideal for those taking their first steps into the world of fabric manipulation and textured designs. Excellent for all who also need to know how to use thier sewing machine - a wealth of knowledge on how to use your sewing machine is proffered in this class. Plus nifty tricks on rotary cutting straight and bias strips are all included - great for all beginners!

 
It is appreciated that students prefer to complete or almost complete their class sample and each class is carefully designed so this should be possible.
All classes are suitable for every level of sewing ability.
